Welcome to the Edmonton Accordion Society 

Next meeting is Sunday, February 17 1:00 till 4:00 pm.  

JJust a friendly reminder that the next meeting is on Sunday, February 17 at 1:00 pm at the Capilano Community Hall. (Note; this is held the third Sunday due to a hall scheduling problem)

 After a short meeting, members will play from the signup sheet. Our Vice President, Nick Molella, has challenged members to also play duets at the meeting. So if you have a duet partner this is an opportunity to show you stuff. 

 Share your knowledge:  We continue to look for ideas to keep our meetings interesting and informative.  Amongst members there is a lot of knowledge and expertise.  Maybe a good fingering technique; maybe different ways of playing the bass side; maybe a great song; maybe a great accordion experience; maybe a good way to learn a new song. In short, if you feel you have a subject other members will be interested in please talk to me or any board member to get it on the program. 

 January 27 meeting.  This was another good meeting with a great selection of music played by members. Norman, who entertains around the Edmonton area playing diatonic accordion and singing Newfoundland music, was at the meeting and added an eastern flair to the entertainment.

 Please be mindful that the parking lot and the walkway to the hall can be slippery.
